Raspberry Jam

Raspberry Jam
11 x 8.5
Pastel on Archival Card Stock

I can hardly wait for spring. We've a few nice days lately and I've been out with the camera taking photos of birds. This house finch with the red head reminds me of my mom. She used to say it was as if someone took these birds and dipped their heads in raspberry jam. This little guy was way high up in the tree. I was fortunate to get such a clear shot of him. 

For a change of pace, I've moved over to some smooth archival card stock. It's a completely different experience painting on the smooth face vs textured paper or sanded paper. It works best with NuPastels and lays down like velvet. I like the super soft texture with feathers.
